Mr. Yazough welcomed the success of this conference which confirms, as the Kingdom had already expressed, the importance for the Libyans to manage their own affairs in order to move from the process of transition to that of democratic building and stability.
The Kingdom, which ensures to coordinate with the United Nations in its actions of rapprochement between the Libyan stakeholders, reiterates its readiness to support the political process in Libya, the efforts of national reconciliation as well as the security, economic and political plans for the construction of a strong and unified Libyan state that strengthens national as well as regional security and stability, he concluded.
